NEW Apocalyptic Games

New Post-Apocalyptic Games
Ark 2

Following the widely popular predecessor, “Ark: Survival Evolved”, Ark 2 will continue the prehistoric survival landscape. Considering Ark is not in the best of states for dedicated servers, the release of a sequel couldn’t come sooner for Ark fanatics.

The story will take place after the last DLC of the first game and will be set on a distant alien planet. VIn DIesel will be set to play the hero character, Santiago which evidently boosted the popularity of the release.

Ark 2 is set for a 2024 release window.

Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon

The sixth instalment to the Armored Core franchise has taken a different approach to gameplay. Developed by the infamous From Software, the creators behind the Dark Souls series. Armored Core VI is a mecha-based Souls Like where players control and customise mechs to fight large bosses.

Armored Core VI was released on the 25th of August 2023.

New Post-Apocalyptic Games
Death Stranding 2

Death Stranding was a strange and unorthodox release unsurprisingly concocted by the mind of Hideo Kojima. Although the game had a mixed response, albeit considering its slow gameplay and unusual mechanics, the game had enough love to spur on a sequel.

The sequel is a direct continuation of the story set after a time skip where we see an older Sam Porter. The main question spurring from the sequel: “Should we have connected?”

Death Stranding 2 does not have a current release date.

New Post-Apocalyptic Games
Ghostrunner 2

Ghostunner was a fast paced, slasher set in a post-apocalyptic setting where you play as a robot. The game had several speedy weapons and abilities. This was coupled with a mechanic where you die if you get hit once, it’s no wonder this had a positive reception with a niche market.

The sequel will be more of this but with new settings, a larger budget and a motorbike.

Ghostunner 2 is set for October 26th 2023 and has a demo out right now!
